I still can't believe this

Hey folks.
I never posted in this forum but I have to tell you a little story.
I have dabbled with chameleons in the past and I now have 9 sub adult veilds.

Anyway, I live in South Florida and had them on my back patio uncovered inside a large deep rubbermaid with bamboo for climbing etc until the grew enough for their permament cages.

I just bought some rats to feed my snakes and was going to work so I put a cover over the rat bin, which in effect the cover was just close enough for the veilds to stretch out and escape to the Florida sunshine.

I came home to find 6 missing so needless to say I was upset over my boneheaded move.

I was looking around in my yard and on some fig trees to see if they had ventured off onto any of them then I noticed a neon green clump on a pepper plant I have growing in my yard. All 6 of them walked over 25 feet and conglomorated on this plant!

Can someone please explain what the heck just happened?
All I can think of is that the color of the peppers attracted them.

lol
